I’ve been so busy, I’ve been putting off my regular pedicures for far too long. I need some motivation to sit for an hour in pursuit of perfectly trimmed toes, and there’s nothing that inspires a trip to the nail salon like shoes so hot, you’ll also travel to a warm-weather locale just to wear them. Like these five splash-making sandals, guaranteed to turn up the heat anywhere…
There’s nothing like a little escape come this time of year, and the next best thing to going off on a tropical getaway with a suitcase full of brand-new resort wear is looking ahead to spring. Spring’s best new shoes have already hit stores, and I’m ready to get a jump-start stocking up. From in-your-face floral appliqués to nautical accents to majorly-elevated flats, there are plenty of reasons to get excited on the early side.
Yes, I know that we’re in the midst of the year’s coldest weather, and unless you have a tropical getaway planned, buying sandals is just a reminder that you won’t be able to wear any for months; but allow yourself to be seduced by the promise of a new spring wardrobe, distinguished by crystals as turquoise as the sea, ankle straps strong enough to get you through hours of dancing, and savings of up to 80% off from NET-A-PORTERicon! Deals like these will melt your sartorial ennui away in no time…
From building snowmen to running errands, depending on the activity you have planned, it’s only practical to coordinate your footwear with your tot’s shoes during the winter. Going totally matchy-matchy is way too much, especially on the wallet, and while you can store your pricier pair away for next year, you don’t have to make the same investment on your tot’s, who will grow out of hers by Valentine’s Day.
While you’re busy cramming in last-minute barbecues and trips to the beach, keep in mind one beautiful thing about the end of summer: it’s time to shop for fall! And at the top of my autumnal list (other than bags, of course) are booties.
In a fantasy world where there’s never a line at the valet, and Thor carries me whenever my feet hurt, I always wear the most extravagant of shoes. But even in reality, we can find opportunities to wear shoes so good they could be displayed as works of art.
We all have pairs of cork or canvas wedges for summer, so why not do one better and indulge in shoes with a little something extra? Embroidery is by no means a new fad in fashion, but on sandals? Well, the style seems to be having a moment! And no one’s gotten it better than Jimmy Choo.
